About the product


Mandalorian officers maintain order on Mandalore. Because this planet of warriors has become a world of peace, the guards are seldom needed for more than minor issues. But the Death Watch group has begun committing acts of violence, so the officers are prepared with riot shields and weapons, in case all peaceful solutions fail.

An “intergalactic” battle is raging — and you and your Mandalorian Police Officer action figure are about to enter the fray! Arm your warrior with his firing missile launcher and other weapon accessories so that he’s ready to charge into combat against his fiercest enemies. Whether fighting for the fate of the “universe” or standing at attention in your collection, this awesome action figure puts all of the excitement of the Star Wars saga right in the palm of your hand!

Figure comes with firing missile launcher and other weapon accessories, Galactic Battle Game card, battle base and game die.

My Thoughts

The Star Wars series is definitively a great place to tap in creating toys for kids.  This specific figure that we receive is part of a huge selection available at any toy store.  

I remember the days when the Star Wars movies came out back in the late 70s.    People would rush to get the figures in stores.   I had a couple and that was enough for me.  But my in-laws somehow were able to get their hands on a multitude of Star Wars figures, vehicles and so on at a ridiculous price.   Each and everyone of them were single wrapped for my husband and his older brother.    That Christmas was more than likely nuts…   Apparently the boys were tired of unwrapping gifts at one point.  LOL  

Well with the Clone Wars series raging on television and on DVD, this generation of kids will have plenty of choice of characters to play with.    Each figure comes with a galactic battle game card which is needed to play the Galactic Battle Game.  


The idea sounds interesting but it is a bit disappointing that you have to purchase each character separately to get more cards.    It would be nice to get a starter pack so that you can play without waiting a long time to get other cards.

Needless to say, my kids will be pleased just to have the figure to play with.  It will join the pack that they have including a few from the days their dad was a boy himself.    Old Chewbacca and his older friends are looking forward to get back in the battle.    Another difference between the older figures and the new ones are that the body of the new ones moves – legs, arms and hips are able to bend which is a big enhancement compare to the older figures.

The Star Wars The Clone Wars figures and their Galactic Battle Game cards are available at your favorite toy store.
